As the Naval Forces progress toward the network-centric environment envisioned by JV 2010 and JV2020, their dependency upon decision-making aids will grow exponentially as the warfighters thirst for knowledge from the flood of information rises. As noted from Joint Vision 2020, we ...must be able to take advantage of superior information converted to superior knowledge to achieve decision superiority - better decisions arrived at and implemented faster..... Particularly of concern are the shortfalls in the consolidated situational awareness available to the decision makers in the Tactical Flag Command Center TFCCs and Combat Direction Center CDCs onboard aircraft carriers. The existing CDC and TFCC systems do not provide integrated and fused information which requires more people to glean information out of multiple, stove-piped systems. The current systems are not designed to enhance decision-making and information is not presented in an integrated, graphically based manner that facilitates communications and decision support. This increases response times, resulting in reduced mission effectiveness. 21st Century Systems, Inc. is proposing a unique solution to this issue, the Advanced Battlestation with Decision Support System ABSDSS that utilizes an Agent-based Decision Support System coupled with a 2D3D Battlespace Visualization Tool. The ABSDSS utilizes 21CSIs Agent Enhanced Decision Guide Environment AEDGETradeMark Architecture which expedites generation of Agent-based systems.
